are still missing. the misery not yet over. the storm is expected to continue to dump heavy rain in philippines until tomorrow. to iran where officials claim they have gotten some damning information from that u.s. drone they say they captured. the information that the iranians say now proves that the u.s. was spying on iran's military sites and its oil terminals. the u.s. has been trying to block iran's oil exports as part of an effort to get iran to give up it's nuke program, but as for the drone, a defense official says no u.s. navy drone is missing. we're about to take you live to cairo. that is where riot police are bracing now for another night of violent street fighting, tear gas all over the city today. this week crowds of egyptians have now stormed the presidential palace, breaking through fences, fighting with security forces, trying to keep them back. now, the protesters, they are furious about several things. first of all, all concerning president mohammed morsi and this growing perception that he
is making himself too powerful. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo. >> opposition factions back protesting against mohammed morrissey for nearly two weeks. most of the protests have been limited to tahrir square, but they're now going to the source of their anger, president morrissey, and his presidential palace. >> why come here? >> because it's -- we got fed up. >> he doesn't respect us. he don't want to listen to our demands. >> reporter: what's your message to him by coming out here? >> that what he is doing is completely unfair. this is not what we asked for. it's complete dictatorship. >> reporter: at one point there were tense moments when protests clashed with police and broke through a police barrier, but things called down pretty quickly. the president in no danger. he left at some point. the protests continue
empassioned but peaceful. there you hear the chants of dictator, dictator. like much of egypt, most of these people are muslims, but you'll also find the moderates, the liberals, the secularists, the women's rights groups. they don't like the way this constitution was drafted. they feel they were sidelined in the process, and they're very concerned that down the road an islamist dominated government could use this constitution and deny them their rights. the president says the constitution is out there for everyone to see. if you don't like it, go vote no. >> that's what they all say. we all know how that's going to be. >> he is going to leave wresh is not our president anymore. >> if he continues like this, we are going to wait in the streets until he go out. >> reporter: opposition factions sounding as defiant as ever, rejecting the president's position who has tried to calm them down by trying to assure them that there is no plot by the muslim brotherhood to monopolize power and according to the president, the best way
to solve this is for egyptians to go out on december 15th and vote. obviously, many of these opposition factions don't trust them. around 10:00 p.m. everyone started to go home, and now the question, will they be back tomorrow and the next day, and what options do they have beyond protesting? >> we've got reza on the phone in cairo. first of all, what are you seeing now? what is taking place? the sun is down, and obviously, people are taking to the streets again. >> reporter: yes, suzanne. there were all sorts of signs today that we could potentially see some violence and some ugly scenes, and, indeed, over the past hour we have seen some violence back at the presidential palace. that's where you have supporters of president morsi, opponents of president morsi. the crowds have been growing over the past few hours, and they started clashing about 30 minutes ago. both sides throwing rocks, debris, even monthly tauf cocktails, charging at one another. most of these demonstrations by
the opposition factions have been at tahrir square the last week and a half. last night they went to the presidential palace to send their message directly to the president. today the muslim brotherhood, supporters of the president, responded by calling for a demonstration at the palace. that's where the two sides have been clashing for the last hour. some tense moments. we'll keep a close eye on the palace to see what the coming hours brings. >> reza, we are looking at live pictures now in tahrir square. give us a sense of how big these crowds are. is the muslim brotherhood, the supporters of the president, is that a very large group, and how does that weigh in terms of the numbers of the opposition here? is this a fair fight? >> these are both very large gatherings. remember, it's important to point out that the muslim brotherhood is the most powerful, the most organized political movement in egypt, and then you have the opposition factions, which is a variety of groups that were divided shortly
after the revolution. now they have banded together against the president. both of them have very, very large numbers. the crowds at tahrir are a couple of thousand. ever since last night most of the protests have focused on the presidential palace. there's some estimates that 100,000 people were at the palace and, again, the crowds are growing tonight. >> is there a sense that the president is in any danger? do they have enough security to actually protect him? i know that there were crowds that got as close to the palace wall to paint graffiti on it. what is the sense of the government there and their leadership? is he in danger? >> there has been no indication that the president has been in in any danger over the past hour, and no indication that the demonstrators have tried to breach the presidential palace. most of the demonstrations have taken place outside. the spokesperson for the president came out in a news conference today and said the police are going to stay back and simply defend themselves. they're going to give the demonstrators the right to
protest. if they're attacked, that's the only time they'll respond. even so, if these two sides, the supporters of the president and the opponents, they're the ones that are going at it, and right now security forces having a tough time stopping it. >> reza, last question here. is there anybody who is appealing for calm that these two groups are listening to? >> reporter: well, absolutely. the president, his spokesperson is, but this is an intense situation. both sides are determined and defiant, and ever since the 2011 revolution, egyptians learned how to protest. they've become very good at demonstrating. they've become very good at being defiant and determined, and that's what are you seeing both sides do right now. they're fighting for what they believe for, suzanne. >> reza sayah, we'll keep a close eye on what's happening in egypt. if the violence intensifies, thank you, reza. appreciate it. i want to talk about another story. this involves this american millionaire who hob has been on the run until now.
john fabbing fee, he created the mcafee security software. he is wanted for questioning in the killing of his american neighbor, right? well, now he has surfaced in guatemala. he has been hiding in belize since his neighbor turned up dead about three weeks ago. mcafee is scheduled to appear at a news conference in guatemala any minute now. earlier he spoke exclusively about his neighbor's death with cnn espaniol. >> no one has blamed me for the murder. i have not been charged. i am not a suspect. they merely want to question me about the murder. i am not concerned. i have not been charged with a crime, then there is no basis for extradition. >> so mcafee's lawyer says his client is going to file a formal request for asylum in guatemala today. marten savage, who joins us, and you were one of the few people who was actually able in belize to talk to this guy in person. why has he moved, first of all? explain to our viewers. what is he doing? >> well, there is a perception
in his mind that the government of belize is somehow after him. he becauses this on the fact that he did not pay money to high-powered political sorts. he has given $5 million to the government to the people over his time there by his own account, but he said that there was a politician who specifically came to him and wanted a contribution to a campaign fund. john didn't give it. he told him in very, well, not so delicate way to go to hell, and so as a result of that, he says that this politician has taken the vendetta against him and is using the government to prosecute him. i said how does that explain the death of your neighbor? >> what does he say? >> he says the death of the neighbor was a tragic crime, a real crime in belize. not orchestrated by the government, but the government is trying to pin it on him. that's what he says. >> what is he doing in guatemala? >> well, he ran there. when i talked to him, i had a very good sense he was going to run. that was quite clear. he was planning to escape. >> what did he say? >> because the way he was talking to us. the fact that he said he was going to be -- the phone he was
using was not going to work anymore. he would be out of communication for some time. it had all the implications there that he was going to run, and so as a result of that, it was, okay, where would he go? mexico very close, just to the north, but then i learned that his girlfriend, with whom he was running, she's from guatemala, and to me that was the uh-huh. that's where he is going. she would have connections and family. he would have a lifeline there, and that's indeed where he ended up. >> you're not surprised that he is in guatemala, his girlfriend is in guatemala. what do you suppose is he going to be announcing? this is a guy who is on the run, and, yet, he is holding news conferences, really? >> right. and the whole on the run, i mean, the authorities in belize would like to talk to him. they basically have said, john, we would love for you to come in and tell us what happened. anything you might have known about your neighbor. that's it. there's no indication. there's no warrant for him. they haven't charged him with anything. i never got the impression there was a door to door search that was going on to try to find him, so this idea that john is running seems to be only in
mcafee's mind, and that is this asylum. why would he need asylum in guatemala? he has an american passport. he can legally travel there. much of the drama seems to be orchestrated by mark fee himself. >> self-created. he claims he has several disguises. what do you know about that? >> well, i mean, he was in disguise, he said, when we met him. we walk into this building. he is coming down a set of stairs. i knew it was him right away. he has that goatee and the mustache. that's very identifiable. but he had put powder in his hair, and he was walkinging with a kane and a limp and holding an arm like is he crippled in some way, and i wanted to say hello, john, how are you doing, but we also knew we wanted to interview him, and i was afraid this would somehow upset him and it wouldn't happen. we all knew exactly who he was, and the only one i think that was fooled by the disguise was john mcafee. >> finally, in spending time with him, what do you make of
his demeanor, his state of mind? i mean, he is on the move, not on the run, but on the move now. he loves to make these statements. he has talked to you. what is he thinking? he knows -- there are times i listen to him and think he is either delusional or he does suffer from some sort of psychosis. there are other times that he is very clear, very sharp, and i think he is enjoying certain aspects of this, the publicity, the way people are coming to him, but you also know he is a genius, and that genius quality still stands, but i would say he is a master of self-promotion and a lot of this is self-promotion. , but in one of the most candid moments i said, you know, you are an intelligent man, but are you a smart man, and he said, no, i don't believe i am, and, in fact, i wouldn't number the position i'm in, and i really do believe that. that he knows that a lot of his problems are problems he created. >> there are still some people who believe, suspect, he has not been charged, but suspect that he killed his neighbor. >> there are, but authorities
say the only link they have is that these two men had a feud and they were neighbors and that's it. they have no further proof or evidence beyond that that mcafee was involved, and a lot of people think he had nothing to do with it. >> martin, you got to do a follow-up in guatemala and follow that guy. thank you very much. fascinating story. really interesting. here are some of the other stories we're working on from around the world. she was a lot more than just the mother of one of the most powerful men in modern media. she also made a name for herself as one of australia's most respected philanthropists. we are saying good-bye to elizabeth murdock. also, the chinese built a city for angolan workers. nobody shows up. nced aspirin. in fact, in a recent survey, 95% of people who tried it agreed that it relieved their headache fast. visit fastreliefchallenge.com today for a special trial offer. ♪ but the fire is so delightful ♪

>> people look very fondly on dame elizabeth. she was a remarkable woman in her own right, and, in fact, the tale of how she came to be where she was in a position to help so many people is a good one too. she came from a reasonably well off family. went to a boarding school. when she's 18 she appears in a magazine as a deb taunt, right? >> right. sure. >> the publisher of that magazine was a man called keith murdock, later to be sir keith murdock, and he was 42. she was 18. he was smitten with her. he gets an introduction at a society event, all very proper, falls in love. he is smitten. they end up getting married. a lot of people didn't want them to get married because of the huge age difference. she said 20 years with him would be better than 40 years with someone else, and, again, 24 years later he did die, but by that point she had already established herself as a remarkable community leader. shifts a philanthropist. she was the matriarch, of course, of the media family to be with rupert, her son. she's going to be mourned by a lot of people that she helped.
>> there were more than 100 -- we were reading 100 charities that she was involved in. >> absolutely. >> even dealing with kids and health and education and all the things. what really inspired her? what drove her? >> it is a remarkable -- 100 organizations. they say countless thousands of individuals that she helped along the way either through those groups or individually dispensing advice, money, you know, helping people out. the work she did with the hospitals was huge. the children's hospital in melbourne, a research center as well. i think it gives the answer to your question was she said when she was 99 she said looking out for people is the most important thing in life and is the most rewarding. happiness, i think, lies in thought for other people and trying to help them. i mean, whenever you think of rupert murdock or whatever else, this was a lovely lady. >> what does she think of her son's endeavors in the media and all the controversy around the empire? >> she was proud of all her kids. i actually knew rupert murdock's daughter, elizabeth, who was named after dame elizabeth too,
and she used to speak fondly of her grandmother. this was 20 years ago back in australia, but she will be looked at as a woman who had a good inning as we say in australia, a cricketing term. she lived a good, long life, and a rich and rewarding one. >> good for her. >> yeah. >> and her family as well. >> exactly. >> thank you, michael. they say living underground in aleppo, syria, is like living in a grave. we'll hear from a family that's caught in the middle of the violence. again? it's embarrassing it's embarrassing! we can see you carl. we can totally see you. come on you're better than this...all that prowling around. yeah, you're the king of the jungle. have you thought about going vegan carl? hahaha!! you know folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than antelope with night-vision goggles. nice! get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. social security are just numbers thinkin a budget.d... well, we worked hard for those benefits.

imagine this. a family of five living in a grave. that is how one of the members of the family actually describes this underground bunker where they are hiding. the war is raging above them in the syrian city of aleppo, and they've been underground now for months. arwa damon is taking us down into the dark basement hide-out to actually meet this family. >> reporter: down a steep, stone stairway into the darkness. this is where the family has been hiding for four months. the strikes were all around us.
we just ran out with nothing, 20-year-old recalls. we just ran and ran down here, and the shrapnel was falling all over. since then they've dared occasionally to go back home to collect belongings. there would be bombing like that and we would come running back here, she says. their home is just five doors away, but it's right on one of aleppo's frontlines. it's been hit by artillery fire since they fled. we go home every two weeks to shower, fearful and terrorized, her mother tells us. we have a weak hole. it could crumble any moment. their makeshift bunker was a workshop. the carpenters intricately carved furniture still lines the walls. the last time the family ventured out was three weeks ago. f atm a and her younger sister want to leave.
anywhere but here. anywhere they can feel the sun and smell fresh air, but their father refuses. poor but proud. he says he doesn't want to be at the mercy of others. here he can send his son to scrape money and buy a little food. it's humbling how amidst all they have lost and suffered, they insist on offering us tea. the girls dream of wounded neighbors. their mother has nightmares her children are dead and says she feels her heart is going to burst with each explosion. i just tell her it's far away and not to be scared, but sometimes the bombings are so close the family says they choke on the dust. what can we say? we're living in a prison. prisoners in a prison, fakma says.
it's more like a grave, she adds. to give you an idea of just how dark it really is and terrifying with all of the sounds of the gun pir outside, we're going to switch our camera light off. this tiny flame is all the family has. as they listen to the sounds of war above. arwa damon, cnn, aleppo. social media have been critical to getting the word out. video like the one posted on-line. this one right here. shows peaceful demonstrations against president bashir aul awes yad that began last year and spiralled into now what is happening. >> activists regularly posting these videos and articles about the civil war that is taking
place there. often these are really just only the images we are able to get from the front lines wrush see it there. she is co-founder and managing editor of syrian deeply.org. you're a former correspondent with abc and bloomberg as well. you have seen some of the -- what is taking place there. what do you make of the civil war? >> my heart breaks like the ones in arwa's piece. what we felt we had to do was to step out of the story for a moment and just look at technology, look at what's coming out from user-generated images, from voices of syrians trying to tell their stories and just collect it in one place, so we decided to build syria deeply. it's part news aggregator, part backgrounder and part original reporting. what we felt we needed do was to give people more background, more indication and engagement on these issues because months and months into this crisis, so
many people just don't understand and don't really have a way to make sense of it. it's so complex and there are so many sophisticated pieces, we wanted to do the best we could with technology to make it all make sense. >> and how tough is it to actually get an accurate picture of what is taking place on the ground? we have heard that we know with the internet being down, some of the phone lines as well, that it is very difficult to actually have people communicate with each other and really get the real story out. >> absolutely. we had a kind of lucky break last week. our reporters in aleppo were on the internet using a satellite connection when the whole country was cut off from the worldwide web, so we had information, at least some, coming out. what we find is that it's a very innovative social media game right now in syria. the frontlines are really on skype. the conversations, those private chatrooms where we're invited in, where we can listen to these conversations in real-time chronicling battles in different cities and watching people communicate with each other, so
skype is really become the way that we get a lot of that information out. >> those weapons might fall in the hands of those that might terrorize other countries. the people that you talk to, what are they most concerned about? >> they're really afraid of what happens in this critical period where the assad regime starts to crumble and the opposition isn't necessarily ready to take over and secure those sites. this is really the clutch time wheren only do we need to worry about what the assad regime might do, but how that transition is going to be handled and managed. sources are telling us that there is an active contingency plan underway that the international community is trying to train the opposition in how to secure those sites. everything from 24 hour skype connections with rebel brigades to try to secure those chemical weapons facilities to train them in how to communicate with the current regime. officials in the regime right

has suspended india's olympic association. the ioc said it was compelled to do so because of the indian branch's failure to comply with the olympic charter and has a protective measure against government's interference in the ioa's election pros. in spite of the protection, the indian olympic association went ahead with the elections anyway. the main point of contention seems to be that one of the officials who is widely expected to be the secretary general of the indian olympic association is actually the secretary general of the commonwealth games that were held back in 2010, and he is still facing charges of corruption. he is currently out on bail. he has been in custody for the past 11 months. if the international olympic committee's suspension is not lifted it means indian athletes will not be able to participate in future olympics under the indian flag. now, even though this comes as a huge embarrassment, many of i understanda's athletes have actually come out and supported

jericho will take between five hours and a whole day, he says. the construction here would essentially be an expansion of one of the largest israeli settlements in the west bank. israel announced the construction of some 3,000 homes in the west bank and east jerusalem as a punitive measure after palestinians won a bid for upgraded status at the u.n. building here would link the settlement with jerusalem, a move the palestinians say would essentially cut the west bank in half and cut them off from what they hope will be the capital of any future palestinian state, east jerusalem. >> there is no chance for a palestinian state. it's impossible. i mean, anyone who would look at the maps, look at the geography would know exactly that this decision means that no more two-state solution. >> the israeli government says it believes the palestinians breached international treaties by going to the u.n. m first place and the decision to move ahead with the settlement construction is a direct response.
israel's announcement to settle in the e1 area of the west bank has led to harsh reactions both from the united nations as well as countries around the world. nevertheless, israel says it stands by its decision and will not be deterred by international pressure. west bank settlements like this one look almost like any other city in israel with schools, malls, and supermarkets, but they're on land, and the international community says it should be negotiated about as part of a future palestinian state. the mayor tells me he believes israel has every right to expand. >> this place, this -- it is in municipality -- a government land that has to be built for our -- >> reporter: others are more blunt. it should be joined to jerusalem, this man says. that way the arabs can't take their part of jerusalem. whether or not the construction goes forward, this will remain

this is one of the most beautiful modern housing communities in the world. it's a massive city. it's outside of rwanda, angola. the government had to build this to solve its housing shortage, but very few can actually afford to live there. cnn's dave mckenzie takes us inside a high-rise ghosttown. ♪ >> this is the promise of a new
angola. the government propaganda video shows the scale of the new city. ♪ the chinese got. it's quite extraordinary. some five years ago there was absolutely nothing here. just bush. in that time they have schools and medical centers, kindergartens and tens of thousands of apartments. built using angola's oil credit lines with china. the final touches are still being made. but there are highways without cars. schools with no pupils. it feels like a ghosttown. we eventually found someone who had bought a flat. >> so you live in this apartment building? which -- where is your apartment? on the seventh floor. wow. and this building, is it completely filled? >> no, no. >> translator: no.

country. construction is booming. housing can't keep up. a shabby flat will cost you up to $4,000 a month, and here most people survive on less than $2 a day. the government points to developments like this as an example of its commitment to the people. >> reporter: there's a housing shortage in angola, but housing without people doesn't solve the problem. >> they are solving the problem because people are moving. the idea was -- you don't have any problem relocating people, and from there you -- >> start from complete scrap. >> complete. >> why did you choose the chinese for this project? was it because the oil went to china and this was a response? >> we had to do a lot of houses, and we need to get a good price, and the chinese gave us the

the president is offering $400 billion in cuts from entitlements, but he also wants to spend $50 billion more on infrastructure. go to house speaker john boehner. he is offering $800 billion in increased revenue. he also wants much deeper cuts in entitlements and $800 billion in other cuts many spending. we've got reporters -- i want to start off with you. dana bash on the hill. a standoff here, republicans essentially saying, look, the president is not being reasonable here, and then you have the white house saying this is magic beans and fairy dust. is this a lot of posturing here? are we really at an impasse? >> yes to both of those questions. there is a lot of post urg, but we do seem to be at an impasse. i want to show our viewers some video that will illustrate just what we're talking about. that is pictures of members of the house of representatives leaving for the week, and now, i don't want tower viewers to get concerned. the calendars on the desk tops
are not wrong. it is still wednesday. this did happen at noon on wednesday. it would be nice if all of us could do that, but -- >> yeah, really. >> this is not an accident. republican leaders say that they just simply have nothing to vote on right now on the floor of the house, and, you know, it helps them illustrate the whole message that they're sending out, which is that the ball is in the president's court. it is up to him to respond to the republicans at this point, and until then, there's not a lot for rank-and-file members of the house to do. listen to what the speaker said about where he thinks things stand right now. >> if the president doesn't agree with our proposal and our outline, i think he has an obligation to send one to the congress, and a plan that can pass both chambers of congress. >> so that's where things stand. republicans say that they're waiting and they have a very deliberate strategy. part of it right there from the house speaker to try to make the
president look like he just won't move, like he is being unreasonable both on the process, but also on the substance. the other point that john boehner hit home hard in his press conference today was that republicans in their counter offer are also -- insist also saying that they think it's okay to raise taxes effectively on the wealthy. they just don't agree with the fundamental difference between the two of them, which is how to do it. >> sure. of course, the white house, the president wants to raise it on tax ritz. the republicans say no way. >> is there any concern among republicans because we know they're not all kind of lining in lock step on what to do here. this doesn't look good, the optics of it all, them leaving and going home. a lot of people look at this that and go really, you're not going to try, stick around, get more work done here? are they worried it can backfire? >> i actually asked the speaker that very question. he said, look, i'm here. i'm going to be here. i'm going to be waiting for the president to respond. certainly there is some concern, but as one republican told our deirdre washington a short while
ago, look, it is what it is. it is the reality. the reality is there is a lot of waiting going on. on both sides, but particularly right now when it comes to republicans. one of the sort of subplots we've been talking about here, suzanne, you and i talk abouted it about it yesterday is the conservative backlash missed the republican party against the speaker for this counter proposal they put forward that has $800 billion in new tax revenue. we were outside this meeting that republicans had today, and we thought maybe there wab some of that vocalized. it didn't happen, according to many sources. they say that they're united behind the speaker in what he is trying to do right now, which is just move the process forward. >> okay. dana, thank you. let us know if anything comes of that. if it does move forward. president obama made the fess cal cliff case to business leaders today. dan lothian is at the white house. dan, he is meeting with business leaders, but there is no phone conversation that is taking place, no conversations at all taking place with boehner now. what position is the white house in?
how does the president feel this is going? >> you're right about that. the white house continues to insist conversations are ongoing, but i'm hearing from gop aides that, in fact, what we're seeing in the public is exactly what's happening in the private, and that is that it's essentially a standoff. there are no phone conversations, no e-mails, no texting going back and forth, and identify been talking about this. it's very difficult to see how this process moves fashd if -- we see them bringing in business leaders to the white house, ceos, middle class americans, and they're reaching tout these ceos of the business roundtable saying his policies will help businesses. his policies will make it easier to create jobs and that he is rooting for them. at the time he is trying to get behind his position for fixing this fiscal crisis, and giving them somewhat of an opt 34isic tone when he said that he is
seeing some good mooumt on the other side. take a listen. there's recognition that maybe they can accept some rate increases as long as it's combined with serious entitlement reform and additional spending cuts. >> the president saying that if the republican leadership takes up, they can get them to take up that framework and the numbers are not fa far apart, and that a deal can get done within a week. it's opt miresic if both sides aren't sitting down and talking. >> a week, you made my eyebrows rise there. a week. okay. let's see how this goes. it's an optimistic point of view there, but, of course, both sides really trying to put forward their best effort. dan, thank you. appreciate it. >> okay. >> so if the country falls off the fiscal cliff, 90% of all americans are going to feel the pinch. the average american house hoed will see taxes go up by more
than $3,400. our next guest went to capitol hill and the white house today to do something about this. kristin, she is one of the co-founders of moms rising, an on-line group that add slow indicates for families. kristen, tell me about your group. you went to the hill today. you have a petition, and you got some teddy bears as well. what's the serious message behind this? >> well, moms rising has more than a million members across the country. moms who care about family economic security and care about our nation, and they sent in stories by the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds about how going off the fiscal cliff would impact them. today we went to congress, and we delivered those stories, in fact, to every member of congress saying don't put us in an un-bear-able situation. don't throw moms and families off a fiscal cliff. we need to act quickly to fix this situation for women and families and to end the bush era tax cuts for the wealthy so that those folks around the country don't end up paying more than their fair share.
>> all right. what can both sides do here, because they're obviously at an impasse, and you say you don't want the taxes to go up for the wealthiest americans. what are youotology give up to make sure that everybody is contributing their fair share? >> i think the first thing that each and every member of congress has to do is listen to their constituents wrrn it's important to note that families are struggling. having a fiscal cliff situation, going on inside the beltway, has a rippling reprecussions for people outside the beltway. we heard stories from people like ruthy who shared with us that her husband is a small business owner. he runs a catering company. because of the economic downturn, he has had fewer clients, which has meant they cannot make ends meet on her salary at a nonprofit and his salary to raise their two children, and, in fact, their phone was recently turned off. they're very concerned about having to pay more taxes just
because congress can't end this fiscal cliff fiasco. >> you might have misunderstood the question. what do you think the mom kz do? what do you think, you know, families can do or should be doing to try to help the situation, obviously, because you've got some people who argue, well, you know, maybe there ought to be major cuts when it comes to medicare or medicaid or reforming social security, that kind of thing? >> well, we absolutely 1150% are hearing from moms across the country that it is not the time to cut medicaid. it is not the time to cut medicare or social security. one in three kids are receiving their health care through medicaid, and so we don't want to see any kind of bargaining or putting on the table of anything that takes health care away from kids because, guess what, that does not help taxpayers in the long run. when we don't give kids the care they need, we end up autosing more taxpayer dollars in the long run to fix later health strobz. we heard stories from people like ann who shared her
4-year-old son has autism and he is getting help from medicaid to have occupational training. if they pull that program, then her son will not be able to be independent living person in the future. >> we appreciate your activism. obviously, bringing your point of view to the hill. hopefully folks are listening on all sides here. it seems like we are at an impasse, and certainly want to make sure that we avoid the fess cal cliff. thank you very much. appreciate it. we have sad news for music lovers. gentlemans legend dave brubeck has passed away. he died. he was a pianist and known for both really stepping outside of the conventional boundaries of jazz. really an incredible individual. very creative. bringing jazz to the mainstream. even appeared on the cover of "time magazine." that was back in 1954. he broke racial barriers as well. this is someone who in the 1950s played in black jazz clubs in the deep south. he was a veteran of patton's

it kind of tough for people to think about and accept the fact that we are actually in the midst of a recovery. how do you figure? >> hi, suzanne. this is true. the labor market has been recovering for a couple of years now. not nearly at a pace with what we like the economy really moving again too, and now can you see it reflected many some of the moves these big companies are making. what is happening is that they're being forced to streamline to keep things operating as tightly as possible. it will cut 99,000 jobs arnold the world, and this is a global layoff, and they're doing this in an effort to save about $1 billion. michael corbitt says these actions are logical next steps in citi's transformation. suzanne, to remind our viewers, the bank has struggled more than some of its rivals after the financial crisis. now, i also want to update you on what's happening with lockheed martin. lockheed marten is relocating hundreds of jobs from georgia to texas. employees who work on the company's f-22s will have the option to move from marietta to fort worth by the end of march.
if they choose not to, they'll either be reassigned or laid off. you're going to hear similar situations at other companies too, and these moves are one of the more unfortunate aspects of an economy that's really having trouble rebounding, suzanne. >> explain to us on the flip side here. here are still some companies that are actually having trouble filling their positions soon when there's still millions of people out of work. how does that square? >> parch the problem is that the pay is modest. we talked to ups, they're having trouble filling their temporary holiday spots. they pay up to $11 an hour on average, but they were reluctant to say that's held people back. instead, it's the fact that workers know the holiday positions are just temporary. ups told us that on the east coast lots of potential workers, they took fema positions to help out with sandy recovery. many of those jobs last longer than what ups can offer. experts say that that's also part of the problem, but the fact that people want to hold
out for more permanent better paying jobs, but, susan, one other thing here, the issue of filling positions isn't just in lower paying fields. there's currently a big skilled worker shortage, but one consulting group says it's not that there's not workers out there. it's that companies, they're being too selective about who they hire, and they don't pay competitive wages, suzanne. >> wow. complicated picture there, but yol a lot of people still out of work. some companies can't fill positions. thank you. appreciate it. they're smart, right? they're playful? very intelligent. why would someone want to kill dolphins? we are searching for a killer. e just right. perfection is in the details. ♪ get to holiday fun faster with pillsbury cookie dough. hurry in and try five succulent entrees, like our tender snow crab paired with savory garlic shrimp. just $12.99. come into red lobster and sea food differently. and introducing 7 lunch choices for just $7.99.

it's very strange and strushing. it's happening along the gulf coast. this is since friday. the bodies of two dolphins and the head of a third have now washed up on shore. this is just on top of at least seven others that have turned up this year along a 120 mile stretch from louisiana to florida. now, locals say it's not unusual, right, for dolphins to end up on the beach after getting caught up in fishing nets or dying of natural causes, but some of these dolphins, the ones we're talking about here, were shot, stabbed, and mutilated. our ed lavadara is in biloxi,
miss mishgs to talk about it. is there any link, first of all, between all of these dolphins? >> well, suzanne, that's what investigators are trying to figure out, and that's a question they haven't been able to answer at this point. at least probably tell us whether or not this is the work of one specific person or if there's several people involved, but the one thing that does -- weave spoken at length with various people who are involved in this investigation, including the specialist who has been doing the necropcy, which is the autopsy of these dolphins, and it's clear from that work, we're told, that these dolphins were clearly killed as a result of human interaction, so these dolphins were essentially murdered. we do know that there's a little bit of evidence in the way at least a couple of them, several of the dolphins, were shot. we're told with a handgun. there's some ballistics evidence that they're able to look at.
it's very hard to prove. this is a massive, massive kill. this happened along 120 mile stretch of the gulf coast from eastern louisiana to western alabama. there's a lot of -- the crime scene is massive. it's hard to kind of get any kind of evidence or any kind of witnesses. they're really urging people -- they're hoping that whoever is responsible for all this perhaps they've been bragging about it in some way and that the people that have overheard these people talking would come forward and tell investigators. >> do we know, ed, what the penalty is for this kind of thing, for killing dolphins ms way? >> well, they're protected by the marine mammal pact, and for each dolphin that you are convicted of murdering, killing, it's up to one year in prison and a $100,000 fine. there are up to seven, they suspect, that we've reached so
far and then another three that are mentioned off the top in recent days, and that's really the concern is that this started back in -- they started washing up on shore in january, but it's really been in the last month where you have seen the greatest number of these dolphins start washing up on shore. there's a specialist along the gulf coast that will tell you that it's a reason for concern because here in the next few months a lot of female dolphins will be moving into the mississippi sound just closer to shore to give birth to their babies, and they're really worried that the attacks could start claiming the lives of young baby dolphins. >> ed, thank you very much. appreciate it. sad news for music lovers. jazz legend david brubeck has died. as a pianist he was known for both stepping outside the conventional boundaries of jazz and, of course, for bringing jazz into the mainstream. he even appeared on the cover of tile magazine in 1954. he also broke racial barriers. it was back in the 1950s he played black jazz clubs in the deep south.
brubeck, we are told, of heart failure. he was on his way to a routine cardiologist appointment with his son. bill cosby, he is a jazz enthusiast, who actually appeared in a documentary about brubeck. they was produced for his 90th birthday. i want to bring in bill cosby, who is now on the phone with us. mr. cosby, thank you so much for joining us. tell us what he was like. >> dave was a jazz musician, and one of the stories that i love about his life is the college he entered dave was not playing the kind of music herp teaching, but they did recognize that dave had an ability that even though they weren't really teaching it, it
was, many of the, important, so he graduated. however, many the biography and according to dave, i heard him say this that they asked him not to tell people where he received his degree because they did not like the way he was playing, and, of course, dave then went on and those times with the music of racism along with louie armstrong, and certain clubs would not let you in if your group was integrated, and dave said, no, it's not going to happen that way. >> who was behind that? >> it was wonderful to have people like dave who see life
that way. i have to give condolences for his wife. dave and i worked together, and i think it might have been carnigy hall. i'm not sure. it was to celebrate one of his ear birthday with either a 5 or a 0, and i remember going into his dressing room, and as always, i have never seen more than five or ten couples in show business locked the way they were locked. she was there always. dave sitting there. had he connected with each other. i think i came in to sign posters, autographs, and a young woman whose grandfather was the
general manager of the hotel had come in to visit morning city, so i said, well, come and, of course, french people love our jazz, and so when she came, she became, i think, more excited about this legend, mr. brubeck, and she came into the room. she was very, very calm, and we gave her a poster. >> yes. >> but, man, when she went home, she just lit up all of the south of france with the stories about meeting dave brubeck. >> mr. cosby, you spent some time with him. what was he like really as a person? >> in the 1950s the music was supposed to be the music of the cool, the cool guys, you know?
psychology and smool smooth. that's what he was. he brought it with it and others who know music technically like marselles. hopefully you can get him on to explain to you those -- i mean, dave was really a different kind of player. rhythmically as he was thinking with the cords. he was cool. that's whaefs. cool. >> he broke racial barriers. you talked about that a little bit. what was behind that? what was behind his thinking that he felt.
>> as i have said, racism is a waste of time, and people who try to push, it keep it out front because of whae their idiocy happens to be, there are people like dave and others, et cetera, et cetera, louie armstrong, they all move that in playing these places, that they were given an opportunity to say, month, it's not going to be that way, and i must tell you, another person who is not a musician, but was very, very important in that time for breaking racial barriers was
hugh hefner. for all those clubs he owned, he said they will be private clubs, and we will integrate. >> what kind of contribution did he make to the music world, to the jazz world? what kind of loss is this now that he is gone? i understand he practiced up until really just days ago. with. >> with our new significants you can tell who that person is by becoming an acquired listener. the same as many people can say that is stravinski, et cetera, et cetera. we, those of us listening to the music, having come through the 1940s, the 1950s, we can tell because our musicians who broke
through had a style and you could tell in a heart beat that was dave. you could tell from his playing to the sound and, of course, paul dizmond, joe, borello. i hope i said the names correctly. >> yesh. >> but it was the style and it got to you. he included that sound of the blues, the rhythms of africa, and of israel, of arabic and he included that and he made all of it swing so that people actually tried to dance. >> mr. cosby, thank you so much for your insights.

sparkle. she's everything for me. >> i believe i will never see her again. >> reporter: it's a complicated legal fight dealing with international borders and treaties and important muff that the u.s. supreme court has taken the case. the last team she was in the u.s., her father shot this video of her, but now she lives in scotland where her mother lynn is from. a federal judge ruled that lynn could legally take aris back to scotland despite her father's objection. jeff is a u.s. army sergeant that served in afghanistan. he says aris shouldn't be with her mother because lynn has a drinking problem. >> personally i don't think that somebody with an issue, an alcohol issue like that, can take care of a child. you know, definitely on their own. >> reporter: as evidenced jeff points to this 2010 police video where lynn was charged with disorderly conduct. but lynn says it was an isolated incident after a night out. >> i had too much to drink, and i apologized to the court, you
know, when i was taken to court. that's no reflection on me as a mother. i wasn't drunk in charge of my child. >> reporter: it's a classic he-said-she-said. >> i believe he set me up. >> reporter: lynn accuses jeff of unwanted controlling behavior, including a plot to get her deported. >> he called the police on me on the 24th of december, christmas eve, and i was removed from the house. i was taken to jail. >> reporter: something jeff denies. >> how could i get her deported? how is that even possible? >> reporter: telling a totally different story. >> i woke up with her standing over me with a knife. >> reporter: why would the supreme court get involved in there's a treaty called the hague convention that says the child in the middle of an international custody battle goes to the country of her habitual residents. here's lynn's lawyer. >> the whole treaty trnz on these two words. habitual residence. what is the ordinary, regular home of this little girl? >> reporter: what is it? >> scotland. >> reporter: the federal court
agreed that's where aris belonged, but jeff's lawyer argues the judge got it wrong. the question is whether lynn intended to stay in the u.s. with her family. >> the phrase miscarriage of justice comes to mind. >> reporter: but the main issue for the supreme court is that jeff can appeal the decision now that aris is out of the country. >> we've got to have that next level of review. >> reporter: and it could have broader implications. >> this is a case that has immediate significant long-lasting impact for every parent in america. >> reporter: though most likely for military families and families who travel overseas. ultimately lynn's lawyer says it all comes down to this. it's not good for a child to go back and forth like a ping pong ball. >> reporter: it's mainly designed help children who have been abduct from their home country, but this is a slightly different scenario. the story has caught the attention of two republican senators, but neither would say they will introduce legislation addressing any of the issues.
passing a bill to circumvent a treaty would be controversial on capitol hill and suspect in the courts. joe johns, cmn, washington. former president george w. bush is out renewing the call for immigration reform. >> not only do immigrants help build our economy, they invigorate our soul. i love 'em even more. i earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. 2% on groceries. 3% on gas. automatically. no hoops to jump through. that's 1% back on...

>> ladies and gentlemen, the 43rd president of the united states. >> former president george w. bush making a rare public appearance yesterday to speak out on immigration. now, he is urging the nation's leaders to revamp the law with what he calls a benevolent spirit. >> america can be a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time. as our nation debates the proper course of action relating to immigration, i hope we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the contribution of immigrants. >> we bring in our cnn contributor republican strategist anna navarro. i want to show our viewers what we've seen from president bush.
he has been largely out of the public arena for a while since leaving office, but we saw at the white house back in may for the unveiling of his portrait there. also, prior to that we saw him with the 20 wounded service men and women in the warrior 100 k bike ride. now he comes out, talks about immigration reform, and i have to say i covered him many years. he spent a lot of time trying to convince his own party, members of his own party, to embrace comprehensive immigration reform. did not happen. why is he weighing in now? >> because i think it matters that much to him. you are right. we haven't seen him in the public fray. we haven't seen him talking politics or talking policy. reaching out to pis panics is in their hearts. we saw it with his father and governor jeb bush and we saw it with president bush 43 when he was in office, and as you said, not only that he spent time, but he spent so much of his
political capital trying to pass immigration reform and remove it as a wedge issue to be used by both parties for political purposes. for a lot of us republicans it was hurtful for president bush to see 27% of latinos, only 27% of latinos voted for the republican, and i think we need to do better. i think that's why he did this extraordinary step of stepping in and talking about the issue. >> i got to ask you this here because you are absolutely right. mitt romney got 27% of latino votes. president bush got 44% when he won re-election back in 2004. do you think he could have made a difference? would he have made a difference for mitt romney if he had stepped in earlier in the debate and said, look, you know what, i believe mitt romney supports latino community and here is why? >> no, and i don't think he should have. look, suzanne, let's face it. mitt romney dug his own hole, and he is now laying in his own
grave. i think, you know, for president bush it was important, and i haven't spoken to him, but i just, you know, knowing the bushes, they don't get into the fray of other people's politics, and they defer to that nominee. they defer to that candidate when it is his turn to be the candidate, but i think this issue is just important to them. it's been important to them their entire life. he has had, you know, great relationships with hispanics across texas and also across the nation. it is true, as i said to you, for the entire bush family. it's something they've always embraced diversity and seen the positive in immigration and in diversity and having different people contribute to the fabric of america. >> he has always talked about his relationships with people who he worked with and worked side-by-side -- >> listen, god knows he has put a lot of effort into his spanish. >> he tries. he does try, yeah. that's absolutely true. last question here. do you think -- okay. he comes out and says, look,
this is the way to go. is the republican party -- are they kind of moving in that direction here? we've seen marco rubio make some comments. we've seen even paul ryan as well. do we see a shift that's happening here that's a little more immigrant friendly. >> i think losing for a second time and getting a low number of hispanics really stunk. it caused a wake-up call that we haven't seen before, and i think there's this realization that the immigration issue, though not the priority issue for hispanics, is an emotional issue and that we are losing hispanics and not able to talk to hispanics about other issues like the economy because, you know, because of the rhetoric, because of the tone issues like and the policy on lishz line immigration. i think there is a realization. now, you know, suzanne, this is washington. there's a huge difference between a realization and legislation. we'll just have to see what happens, and we're going to have to see what kind of skin in the game president obama and the
democrats have come up with. this is going to have to be a bipartisan solution. >> all right. you mentioned mitt romney in his grave. let's see if he becomes resurrected. you never know. there might be another life for him. we'll see. thank you, anna. good to see you, as always. suspected serial killer israel keys crisscrossed the country undetected for more than ten years. the fbi says he admitted to the crimes, but they still don't know who all his victims were. we got the search tore answers, plus new surveillance video of keys before he died while in custody. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

his name is israel keyes. he apparently killed himself in police custody, but police say he confessed a string of serial killings. let's bring in george howell who has been covering this. we understand that he was in alaska. he has since passed away, but he has confessed. do they have a sense of who he killed? >> we do. we know much more about israel keyes. first of all, we know he is ex-military. in at least two cae strangled and sexually assaulted, you know, his victims. we also know he had a very methodical plan that as he went into these situations, first of all, this is a person who would fly into cities, he would rent a car, drive hundreds of miles to find unsuspecting victims, and then he would also have these murder kits. he would have weapons, he would have money that he got from robberies, all of this in anticipation of more attacks. so the most recent attack, his last victim, we know samantha koenig, a barista in anchorage, alaska. he was in anchorage, he went
there to abduct and kill her. then, suzanne, he took a two-week cruise, went to new orleans, took a two-week cruise to return to alaska, to return to anchorage to take a picture of her, pretending she was alive, to then use that to try to extort money from the family. that's how investigators caught him in texas. >> that's unbelievable. how is it that this man was able to travel, to take cruises, to get on planes, to carry out these methodical killings? >> well, that's the thing, you know. this is something that he would scope out and, again, he had kits all over the country. he did everything to just get out of the way. not to get caught. we know after he was caught in texas, and through the course of several conversations, with these detectives, we also learned that he was connected to the murder of bill and lorraine currier in vermont. he went into their neighborhood to try to find a home that would be easy to break into and he chose theirs. listen to his plan, his approach in kidnapping them and then
killing them. >> remote area that is not anywhere near where you live, or that other people go to as well. you might not get exactly what you're -- not much to choose from, in a matter of speaking, but there is also no witnesses. >> so you listen to him there, very calm approach, you know? this was his plan. this is how he carried it out. and we know from investigators, suzanne, he was connected to at least eight murders, four in washington, one possibly in new york, alaska and vermont. >> all right, george howell, thank you very much. appreciate it. he's only 27 years old, but actor frankie muniz, you know him from the show malcolm in the middle, says he had a mini stroke. ♪ you are my sunshine, my only sunshine ♪
